Can I receive Workers’ Compensation if I got injured while working from home?
If you have been injured while working from home for your employer, under certain circumstances you may qualify for workers’ compensation benefits.
I have been recently laid off and have an ongoing Workers’ Compensation claim, is now a good time to settle?
If you have been considering a settlement of your workers’ compensation claim in the past, and your circumstances have now changed, please give us a call to review your case 561-331-5134.
Do employees have the right to work from home?
Under most circumstances, employers do not have to allow an employee to work from home in South Florida. However, under a quarantine order from the government an employer could allow remote work.
If my job requires close contact with customers, am I protected if I say I can’t perform my job because of the outbreak?
These are challenging times for workers in general and employees. Please call for a free consultation 561-331-5134.
If I became sick and am now recovered, but my employer is not allowing me to return to work, what are my rights?
If you can prove that you are no longer affected with the virus, under most circumstances, your employer would have no recourse but to let you return to work.
Does Workers’ Compensation provide death benefits?
Yes, your loved ones will receive benefits.
Can COVID-19 ever be allowed as a work-related condition?
Under certain circumstances, claims from health care providers and first responders involving COVID-19 may be allowed. Other claims that meet certain criteria for exposure will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
